Best Practices in the QC Micro Laboratory
The quality control (QC) microbiology laboratory plays an essential role in pharmaceutical manufacturing and product release. It is responsible for multiple tasks, including:
- Environmental monitoring (sampling, bioburden counts, microbial identifications, and tracking and trending of data)
- Investigating out of specifications, deviations, and contamination events
- Implementing and validating QC methods and testing based on release specifications.
